Sea Shell Mirror Tutorial

My mom was here a few weeks ago and brought with her an old mirror and lots and lots of sea shells and we went to town creating a new mirror for my powder room!

We played around with laying out the shells in different ways but we ended up layering them a bit by using larger shells mixed with small shells and pointy shaped shells. We just used a hot glue gun to attach them onto the old frame.
Once we hung up the mirror we noticed a few areas where we needed to add a few more shells onto the sides.

We had a great time just chatting and glueing and chatting and glueing.

  1. That turned out great! Can you imagine what you would have had to pay for that in a store?
